LAUNCH: Episode 1 - There is more than one way into law

In this episode of Launch, our host, Bianca Vasilache, a final-seat trainee, is joined by MaameYaa Kwafo-Akoto, a senior associate in the funds and asset management group, who shares her unconventional journey into law and the valuable lessons she has learnt along the way. From doing a part-time GDL due to her full-time job and making cakes for Wrap It Up! to cover her LPC living expenses, to working as a paralegal for a few years and having her training contract delayed because of the financial crisis, MaameYaa’s story is an inspiring example of how to make your own opportunities.
